It's Finished!

Today was very hot and humid but I managed to get the denim quilt finished thank goodness. It isn't a beautiful quilt but a utility one for my BIL, using some of his old shirts and jeans. I also left on buttons on the pieces I cut from the shirts and also used some of his pockets from old jeans.
Hopefully he'll like it. My sister thinks he'll be very surprised and I wanted to thank him particularly for his help with transporting quilts and goods for the bush fire areas as well as for East Timor. He's loaned his truck and been a big help with moving boxes of donated goods.
I'll try to get a photo of his reaction when he opens his present.
The quilt measures 55" x 85" which is a good size for him and it has no batting as the backing is a thick woolen fabric and it's fairly heavy.
I also managed to bind 2 of the quilts for Kinglake and will show the photos on my other blog at oz comfort quilts.
Hugs Jan Mac
